Guides to Lancaster

Lancaster Civic Society has produced over 50 guides to Lancaster. They tell you about fascinating aspects of the Lancaster area that are well worth a visit but are less well known than, for example, the Castle or Ashton Memorial for which there are other guides and websites.

The guides cover Lancaster, Morecambe, Carnforth and some rural areas. The guides are short, informative, well illustrated and focus on what you can see while walking around the Lancaster area today. The guides are free to read online, print off or download.

The information in the guides was correct at the time of publication. The authors and editors will update them periodically when required. Comments on the guides and suggestions for additional ones are most welcome. Please contact the editor at clark4be@btinternet.com
